New Delhi, Feb.23 (ANI): AISECT, India’s leading education, training and services network, has announced the launch of its portal ‘AISECT Online’.

This latest technology-enabled initiative of AISECT aims to empower students with anywhere, anytime access and foster a collaborative and interactive approach to learning.

The portal will offer 38 University certified diploma, certificate and post-graduate diploma programs which AISECT conducts in the areas of IT, management, hardware, networking and various other vocational trades.

Moreover, AISECT Tutorials will also be available online allowing students from Class 9th to 12th access to engineering entrance exams preparation material in both English and Hindi.

School level programs and training content for numerous other programs are also in the offing.

According to AISECT Director Siddharth Chaturvedi, “AISECT Online has been developed keeping in mind the basic issues of accessibility and affordability in distance education, due to which a large number of our youth still don’t have access to quality education infrastructure. This portal shall endeavour to bridge this gap by making quality education accessible to greater number of students. Currently, AISECT Network provides training to about 1 lakh students annually and with the addition of this portal we now hope to reach out to twice the number of students.”

“As per the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), India needs 500 million skilled manpower by 2022 to reap the fruits of our demographic dividend. This means that we need to train around 50 million people per annum as against our country’s present total annual installed training capacity of around 4.3 million. By launching this online portal, we are trying to bring hope to those who had abandoned the dream of continuing education due to paucity of time and money. Additionally, AISECT Online will increase flexibility so that learners can have access to education regardless of time and geographical barriers,” Chaturvedi added.

AISECT is ideally poised to deliver various G2C and B2C services to citizens through its wide network.

In addition, this 25-year old organization already has a rich experience of implementing Government of India’s largest rural e-governance project, the Common Service Centre (CSC) Project, in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Punjab.

AISECT, headquartered in Bhopal, is an ISO 9001:2008 certified organization which plans to increase its franchisee network to about 12,000 centers and 3,00,000 students annually by 2012. (ANI)
